Dutch reggae crooner moves to English airwaves

Miriam Simone - Contributed

Having become a household name in the Dutch Caribbean island of Suriname and gained marginal recognition throughout the international reggae music scene, Miriam Simone's career continues to show promise with the release of her latest single and video 'Rivers'.

Rivers will also be Miriam's sixth video release and the first single from her debut English-speaking album, Mount Zion, scheduled for release later this year. Mount Zion is produced by D 'Decko' Douglas and M 'Morro' Nijhove of Dredda Records, also known for productions such as the latest Liberation 20 EP from Ziggy Ricado.

Although Simone has been busy entertaining her fans as the host of a popular national youth television program, Youth Voice, in Suriname, doing various shows, festivals and concerts, she has not missed a beat when it comes to her studio production. She is working tirelessly on her highly anticipated debut English project along with various rhythm features.

The songstress whose hallmark is synonymous with positivity, upliftment and truth, shares these sentiments in her latest single. Her production team was very cautious in selecting this as her successive release, hoping to build on the success of her previous project, Dem A Chat, which received international radio airplay and features on prime-time television throughout various Caribbean islands.

It is also anticipated that with an extra push in the mainstream media across European, this project will break her into new markets and expose her to a wider fan base. So far Rivers has been doing just that, according to positive feedback from DJs and fans alike.
